Urban-Air Port joins hands with Hyundai for future air taxis, drones

Urban-Air Port, a UK-based startup, is collaborating with Hyundai Motor Group's Urban Air Mobility Division to create blueprints and foundations for air mobility infrastructure.

The goal is to develop self-driving drones and electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) passenger vehicles to meet demand by laying the groundwork for clean urban air mobility around the world. The agreement is an important part of Urban-Air Port's plan to build 200 sites around the world in the next five years.

This industry is expected to reach $1 trillion in the next 20 years.

Urban-Air Port received government support earlier this year to build a fully operational urban airport and charging hub for aircraft and drones. The port, dubbed Air-One, will open in Coventry, United Kingdom, early next year.

To meet global demand, the company is focusing on deploying the technology required for eVTOL aircraft and delivery drones, as well as filling the infrastructure gap with more than 200 electric air mobility hubs around the world in the next five years.

The hubs will be able to support any flying car or drone vehicle, no matter how big or small, with on-site maintenance and charging. The hubs will be located in densely populated areas as well as remote locations, and they will be easily transportable to other locations, such as a rapid deployment in the event of a disaster or anywhere emergency services are required.

Hyundai's contribution to infrastructure will include the development of 65 sites across the United States, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the Asia Pacific, to unlock key areas by 2030. Hyundai is working on its eVTOL vehicle while also supporting the ecosystem, with plans to launch the plane in 2028.
